The signal caller, who has been surrounded by controversy over the course of the last year, initially caused a stir when he kneeled during the national anthem last season while with the 49ers. Such an act ultimately caused an uprise of similar protests throughout the NFL, which remain a still a hot topic today.
Kaepernick is still a free agent while now claiming that he has been black-balled by the league’s owners.
